Dear Member:

We hope to see you at Pinehurst in North Carolina for our 2021 annual meeting. The dates for this year's events are:

Wednesday, October 13 through Friday, October 15.

As the cut-off date for reservations is September 13, 2021, we urge you to complete your application online and make your reservations with Pinehurst as soon as possible.  Every effort will be made to accommodate all member requests, but your cooperation is needed.  Given the reasonable rates, a great turnout is expected.

This site contains all pertinent information regarding the program, hotel reservations, travel and recreation.  Please read the information carefully and make sure your registration forms are correct.

In an effort to increase company membership and encourage younger individuals of the industry to become members of the NBCA, the organization has a scholarship program.  If you would like to nominate an individual for this scholarship, please click on the "Scholarship" link and enter the necessary information.  The scholarship will include the program fees, accommodations and program meals during the annual seminar.  A travel allowance of $300.00 will also be included.  Any member of the NBCA may nominate an individual; however, the nominee must be a "company" person.  

 

THE PROGRAM

The program dates are Thursday, October 14 and Friday, October 15.  The Board is committed to offering a quality program with topics and speakers that will provide a meaningful and worthwhile experience.  To view the listing of program topics and speakers, please click on the link entitled "Seminar Program."
